Aftermarket Head Unit, Single or Double DIN?

Well i'm looking at replacing my stock Mach 6-CD in dash changer on the Mach 460 sound system to a aftermarket head unit with front mount USB/Ipod controls...

I'm not a audio guy, really don't need anything more than a average unit with USB and/or aux input since I don't really carry cd's anymore and my iphone has my collection on it...no plans for navigation or dvd but am in the middle to go with a full double din or go single din with a storage tray...

Thoughts?

For the double din i'm looking at...

Clarion CX201

Clarion U.S.A. | CX201


For the single din i'm looking at...

Clarion U.S.A. | CZ201

I'm a clarion fan from everything i've ran before.

Any pictures of installs would help...this is for the 03 mustang.

i've been leaning that way...I think it does look much cleaner than the smaller unit with the tray.

Double din is cleaner but single din does allow you to put a "pocket" either on top or bottom for the other half of the din. I found this to be more helpful as it holds my remote for my stereo and it also keeps my iPod somewhat out of plain view.

I've had my single din with a pocket for a year now and I have yet to use it for anything. Putting your iPod in a cup holder is more accessible anyways.

My wifes xterra has a single with pocket since the original was larger than normal but not really a double din. We do actually use the pocket to hold our phones or wallet on a trip.

I'm just not really liking the look in the mustang, looks out of place in the pictures i've seen.

Looks like i'll be going double din.

If you go single you can throw some gauges in like we did on my car

There's one in my garage. We never got the actual gauges in before we sold the car though.

hmm...that's different for sure. I'd like to see it with gauges but i'd need to have a reason for more gauges in the first place.

Yeah just don't put any gauges you need to constantly view in it because you can't see it to well while driving
